Dog Relaxing at beach club

Is that Hotel Pet Friendly?

Click on hotel then search by city or zip code to locate precise location pet policy.

NOTE: All resort destinations and Las Vegas casino hotels do not accept pets

Hotels that do accept pets may have different restrictions and costs that vary from hotel to hotel.

All hotels do stipulate that dogs not be left unattended.  I would not run the risk of being kicked out of the hotel because you thought your dog would wait quietly in a crate while you went out for dinner. Is he barking non stop? Is he not crated and just tearing up the room and doors?

Dog Friendly? Size Restriction and Weight Restrictions? 

Corporate pages may have one size/weight restriction while the location page may vary.  The good news is that if they have size and weight restrictions at least you know that they accept pets.  If your dog is 50lbs and the location site is saying 25 or 35lbs you should call them directly and just be honest and ask if they can make an exception.

  1. Comfort Inn & Suites: Up to 2 dogs allowed – Details very vague even on destination website – No mention of size or breed restriction,  or deposits/fees
  2. DoubleTree by Hilton:  Allow pets, no mention of breed or size restriction on the corporate site.  Pet fee not to exceed $75 USD per stay.
  3. Extended Stay America : Pets allowed.  More than 2 dogs and/or Dogs taller and/or longer than 36” are only allowable with management’s prior approval.
    $10 per pet per day afterward.
  4. Marriott International : Some have a No Pet policy but for those that do allow pets you can expect to pay a $75 per stay cleaning fee, 2 dog limit, each dog must be under 50 pounds.  Dogs are not allowed to be left unattended in the room presumably due to barking and potential for damage.  Make sure you get a “Dog in Room” sign for your door.  After going to the above link, navigate to find the specific hotel.

Breed Restrictions?

Thankfully in our research, we have not stumbled upon any main corporate page restricting dogs based on breeds.  We have however found restrictions based on behaviors: Barking, Aggression and Destructive Behavior

  1. Fairmont Hotels & Resorts:  Up to 2 pets allowed.  Prices and size restrictions seem to vary from each and every hotel location. 
  2. Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts : Dogs up to 60lbs are allowed. Four Seasons Austin even has pet sitting service that can be arranged via the concierge so it might be worth asking. Fort Lauderdale location allows up to 2 pets with max 25lbs each and a non-refundable pet fee of $100.  It would appear Four Seasons is pet friendly to some degree.  Call direct for details and fees.

Are There Extra Fees?

These fees are usually per pet, per night, or per stay.  These fees vary from location to location.  You should not rely on the corporate website in determining.  We’ve seen locations that charge $100 per stay Plus an additional charge per night.

  1. Hilton Worldwide Holdings – Under Review
  2. Hampton by Hilton:  Pets allowed – $75 pet fee, 2 pets max – max weight 75 pound
  3. Holiday Inn: Pets Not Allowed at the particular hotel locations we researched
  4. Holiday Inn Express:  Pets Allowed – $30 per pet/night fee – Max weight 20 lbs per pet + $10 per night pet deposit. Prices may vary based on location.  Service animals are exempt from fees.

If You Think It’s A Good Idea To Sneak Your Pet Into The Room Instead

That’s going to cost you more?  A LOT more. If caught by staff or video cameras you will end up having to pay an inflated cleaning fee. Why? Because if they know you have a pet you are going to go into a “Pet Friendly” room that does not need to have a DEEP cleaning between visitors.  In addition to extra cleaning fees, you will probably be told to leave the property. The cameras will catch you, don’t think they won’t.

  4. Kimpton Hotels: All pets welcome; the corporate website even states that if they can squeeze through the door they’re welcome.  I think trying to get a horse into your room would be pushing it.  This chain is the first corporate website that I’ve seen that does not charge more for pets, doesn’t require a deposit, and does not have a limit on the number of pets.
